things that are happening in iraq right now. this poem was drawn from my experiences in iraq from the culture, from the music and from its traditions. so i have dedicated this poem to iraq. i think it will be helpful for you to know el kubenchi, along with el watanabi. el kubenchi is famous for music, a great history and tradition of music, and he has taught all the gray modern singers of the 20th century who came out of iraq. his music has touched me and you will hear it in this poem, 32 beads on a string. i woke from the nightmare of a gutted macom, not because i have not yet bled my life in yellow, but because minarettes looking sky ward. one burly buffalo looking for hooves and hot breath because the skin is not yet numb and the lights are not yet flickering, i will continue to sip at my hot tea and stare at the dust-colored noon. one white dasha screams with the brilliance of red. can you hear them, the melodious intent, the glimmering mood in their eyes. face stitched by seam, a garment i have sewn to my skin. whatever remains of el gubenchi's 1932 cairo studio recording liv
, well before military was out of iraq and just after the supreme court issues citizens united decision, but before was utterly clear that the floodgates had been open so wide that we might be called the politics of the rich in america would soon become simply american politics. i called it, being a critic, all the world's a stage for s. in march 2010, i wrote about a group of pundits and more internalized, eager not to see the us military leave iraq. that appeared on the op-ed page of "the los angeles times" and the longer version and then began pondering the media world. one of its stopped curiously enough with the military newspaper, stars & stripes. from a military man can miss e-mailed response, rager article in stars & stripes beard was the last time you visited iraq? a critique and 15 well-chosen words, so much more effective than the one angry e-mails i get. his point is interesting. at least it interested me. after less than wrote back in the senate 65 who had never been anywhere near him back in and and undoubtedly never would be. i have to assume that e-mailer had spent some

was coined be far different book than this. and then after my military experiences and iraq and afghanistan, and as you started seeing the iranian issued a different light i expanded the scope of the book and spent a good ten years researching and writing this. my wife likes to remind me we haven't had a vacation since 2004. so very much every waking moment of my free time. i took a sabbatical from the government service. i was in the washington think tank for an extended period of time which gave me the freedom away from the government to write and travel. the research is quite interesting. if you're familiar with government records and the modern era, they are not in very good shape. most of them are electronic records. a lot of them have not been saved. so it really is -- we are not finding people who still have records talking to people. obviously archives -- and caspar weinberger giving me access to his papers. one of the best sources was a retired admiral i stumbled into who have really detailed presidential and secretary defense level meeting notes in notebooks he had in the crawl sp
eight trips to iraq alone since he was vice president. a total of, i have it here, 16 trips all-tolled in his career. they want that in everybody's mind when he heads into the debate with the opposition and paul ryan, of course. i want to tell everybody, we're going down to the floor right now. we have quick takes from our entire team. jake? >> we've heard osama bin laden's name mentioned a number of times. but white house advise oars say they expect the president's biggest task is to paint a picture of the economy over the next four years. they've contrasted well the choice between president obama, running the country for the next four years, versus mitt romney. but what they really need to do is make it so president obama paints a popular and powerful picture of the economy going forward for the next four years, as opposed to the last four years. >> across the floor from me, jon karl. >> they're trying to recapture that lightning in a bottle you've heard the president talk about from 2008. you heard from joe biden, his favorite slogans. down here on the floor, the delegates al

[tires squeal] now meet carl who works from the coffee shop and uses the free wi-fi. marie works from there too. she's an identity thief who used a small device to grab his wi-fi signal, then stole enough personal information to hijack and drain his bank accounts. every year, millions of americans learn all it may take to devastate your life is a little personal information in the wrong hands. this is identity theft and no one helps stop it better th
example. where we bring our troops home from afghanistan just as we proudly did from iraq. a future, a future where we fulfill the only truly sacred obligation we have as a nation, only truly sacred obligation we have is to prepare those who we send to war and care for them when they come home from war. and tonight-- ( applause ) tonight, tonight i want to acknowledge-- i want to acknowledge, as we should every night, the incredible debt we owe to the families of those 6,four 73 fallen angels. those 49,746 wounded. thousands critically. thousands who will need our help for the rest of their lives. folks, we never-- me must never, ever forget their sacrifice, and always keep them in our care and in our prayers. my fellow americans, we now-- we now-- we now find ourselves at the hinge of history, and the direction we turn is not figuratively, it's literally if your hands. it has been a truly great honor to serve you and to serve with barack, who has always stood up with you for the past four years. i've seen him tested. i know his strength, his command, his faith. and i also know the
from iraq and the planned drawdown from afghanistan. in a theme he touched on throughout his speech, obama said the "change" he promised four years ago would take time, but was surely underway. >> our problems can be solved. our challenges can be met. the path we offer may be harder, but it leads to a better place and i'm asking you to choose that future. >> we will have more from president obama's speech after the headlines and host the debate. at least 50 people i've been killed in a pair of earthquakes in southwestern china. the chinese government says the quakes damaged thousands of buildings, displacing some 20,000 people. the united nations food agency says global prices have stabilized at levels near those of the 2008 crisis that sparked unrest across the globe. ahead of the food and agriculture organization said international action could prevent a crisis in part by addressing the harsh impact of the recent u.s. drought. >> there is a risk of more price increases, but at the moment, there is no evidence to suggest that is an inevitability. the very sharp reduction in u.s. pr
. there is $848 billion infant yom war costs assuming that we continue iraq and afghanistan z since we've ended iraq war on george w. bush's schedule and afghanistan in 2014 he then counts those savings. this is $800 billion in interest payments and he call that's a spending cut. no account for $716 billion from medicare he's borrowing from medicare and has to repay. if you look at his budget what he's put there in black and white and ask congress to pass versus g.o.p. house budget president obama calls for a trillion dollars more in spending than is called for in-house republican budget and $300 billion more in taxes so this is increasing the deficit above what republicans have been suggesting we do. yet, tonight went out there and said i'm going to cut this $4 trillion wasn't believable. >> and that is one of the things last week in tampa is this theme if you didn't build it they've been slamming the president for that. tonight we didn't hear that but that was the theme is that everyone sort of worked together as a community and citizen. soy thought he was directly trying to respond to that w
back strong. he not only demonstrated the courage to oppose the war in iraq, as president, he showed the determination to bring our troops back home. barak obama is the kind of leader my father wrote about in "profiles in courage." he doesn't just do what's easy. he does what's hard. he does what's right. [ cheers and applause ] my father couldn't run for a second term. it was left to his brothers, our family, and the generation they inspired to fight for the america he believed in. now it's up to a new generation, our children's generation to carry america forward. so let me say to the young and the young at heart, barak obama is only president because you worked for him, because you believed in him, because you convinced your parents to vote for him. [ cheers and applause ] young people have always led america toward the brighter future. it happened in 1960. it happened in 2008. and if you show the same spirit in this election as you did in the last, i know that we'll make history again on november 6. thank you.
